Podcast: Michael Christ, CEO of SECO Development

As the owner and sole proprietor of SECO Development, Michael has experience in real estate development that stretches over three decades. He has been purchasing and building real estate since 1980, but he formed SECO Development in 1989 and has been developing mixed-use projects in Seattle, Bellevue, Kirkland, and Renton. 

As a principal in SECO, Michael is intimately involved in all aspects of development and is personally in charge of acquisitions and dispositions. He is involved in design, marketing, and financing while maintaining strong relationships with the cities in which he builds. SECO’s latest project is Southport on Lake Washington, which offers an impressive Hyatt Regency hotel on the shore of Lake Washington with another 730,000 square foot campus in its background. The development is surrounded by housing, retail and connections throughout the greater Puget Sound region.
